“Miniatures about wonders…lifted by cinematic strings” – Het Parool


The Leonids is a musical project with Sonja van Hamel (ex-Bauer) in it’s center. The debut album “Satellite Broadcast Kill” is a record filled with stunning, unpredictable cinematic popmusic.


The live shows add visuals that are created on the spot by selfmade machines. This all combines into a performance where visuals and music team up  seamlessly, with vocals that mix in  the magical and unconstrained harmony between Van Hamel, Wooden Saint, Orlando and the West Side Trio.


The Leonids is a collaboration between Sonja van Hamel (ex-Bauer), Tessa Douwstra (Orlando, Wooden Saints), Viktor van Woudenberg (Wooden Saints), Ralf Pouw (Orlando, Sir James, vanVelzen) and the electric string trio West Side Trio: Vera van der Bie, Annie Tangberg and Isabella Petersen (Metropole Orkest, Martin Fondse Orkest).
